with 64 votes. we passed the hurricane sandy emergency relief bill also in bipartisan fashion, with 62 votes. we had open debate, we had discussions, we had amendments, and we passed legislation. particularly we passed by a powerful bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway constr

as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address our spending by having a budget which you can't really talk about appropriation bills and all of these kinds of things in my mind having this saddam continuing resolutions to fund the government forever is unsustainable. you need to pass a budget to begin with a foundation. >> mr. cole, i also talked to attorneys, our attorneys, some other attorneys, not just on our staff and i tell them, talk to me like i can understand you. because they talk too much legal lease. i ask them, if i get a paycheck in my account

you've got the sandy hook families coming in, it's very hard to oppose -- it's not about the president. you've got -- it's not even about bloomberg's money that's going to go into the advertising. the emotional force of the sandy hook families is just like it was with the 9/11 families. and republicans have got to face up to that. frankly, democrats have to face up and grow a spine here as well. they have run away from the gun debate for 20 years or so because it's helped them get into power in some states. >> by the way, there are 30 to 40 democrats in the house, too, will also fight any reasonable, rational reforms. you know, one of the moments yesterday, richard, that i thought was really telling, i thought one of the president's strongest moments is when he said if you have a congressman or congresswoman that supports assault weapons, ask them why. see, that's where the extremists, that's where the survivalists lose this argument. why do you need an assault weapon? why do you need a high-capacity magazine? you start talking to them, and it always goes back to the same thing. always
feinstein of california is introducing it now in the wake of the sandy hook tragedy. most republicans and some democrats argue that an assaults weapons ban is ineffective, that it doesn't do much for gun violence, doesn't deal with the real problem of violence and violates the second aechlt but the democrats by and large contend that studies show that the assault weapons bandit work when it was in place and that they plan to deal with things like mental illness and background checks in future legislation. nancy cortes, cbs news, capitol hill. >>> also on capitol hill, the debt ceiling crisis appears to have been averted, at least for now. a bill suspending the debt limit is headed to the senate. the house passed the measure yesterday. it allows the treasury to exceed its borrowing limit through may 18th and the president says he'll sign the legislation. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton returns to capitol hill today. she'll introduce senator john kerry tapped to take her place. yesterday clinton spent more than 5 1/2 hours testifying before congress about the siege of the u.s. co
, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skype, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put

about hurricane sandy. does anyone have an estimate of what the drought of 2012 s. costa so far? the issue is within agriculture loaned the estimate from usd is almost $50 billion within agriculture loan. what ends up happening and don and others can tell you from work done at the center is when we ask where those impacts coming from? the agricultural impacts constituted about 25% of the total number reported impacts that we have seen. water resources, energy, wildfire, and one of the things you heard in the last discussion and in this one, of the under appreciated aspect of the impact of drought. the loss of ecosystem services as a supporter and supply tourism recreation clean water and clear air. we do not have any sense of what the cost of those multiple impacts are. we know a bit about the insured impacts from agriculture, so therefore what needs to be considered? the indicator that margaret is saying about how people are economically impacted by this critically how they are socially impacted. if we are to put plans into place, we have to ask how do you know they are working
to prevent further gun violence. >> reporter: after the trauma of the sandy hook massacre the urgent call to limit americans' easy access to guns has met with some stiff resistance and exposed america's cultural divide over firearms. the president offered 23 different executive actions which would strengthen background checks, better address the issue of mental health and call for armed officers in schools that want them, but the politics of gun legislation are fraught with danger for the president. there are 24 senate seats up for grabs in 2014 including in the gun friendly states of arkansas, new hampshire, iowa, louisiana and south dakota which suggest any gun control measures will have to be a compromise. >> everyone is trying to divert from the core issue which is there is a huge consensus in the country including a vast majority of republicans that things like assault weapons, high capacity magazines, universal background checks, making progress on mental health, these are things we should and can do to help reduce gun violence. >> i think this is a moment we can do something about
after the deadly shootings at sandy hook elementary school. the article reads in part, like most americans i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bear armts but i believe most gun owners agree we can respect the second amendment while keeping an irresponsible law-breaking few from doing harm. >> the president's article comes one day after he laid out a number of measures to curb gun violence. he signed 23 executive orders aimed at research, mental health and new data on background checks. the gunshot manufacturers worry it could affect their industry. >> it depends on what they ban and how offensive it is and how quickly the manufacturers can come up with new things to sell. >> reporter: and in response to the president's proposals the national rifle association calls it "the fight of the century." and the group says law-abiding gun owners have reason to worry. >> they have a good deal to fear. they have to fear the establishment of the national registry. you know in the last few days, senator from california and the governor of new york has suggested th

will be reading this speech and the one after the shootings at sandy hook. that will be the obama portion of their reading in the speeches of american culture. those two speeches stand as one of the best things that i have heard in my life. i mean, i am talking and that good. host: mason next in a dayton, ohio. caller: good morning. how are you? are really thought president obama's speech was an lightning, and i thought it was very motivating and inspirational. it really spoke on the points that ring true for the majority of americans in this country. most of the polls have shown support for the president is at an all-time high of presidency is over the past several decades. i really hope that his call for gop not to be so obstructionist in the next four years, actually get the work done, is answered. on a second note, i have been very upset about the callers that have called in today, overreaching, saying that obama has not spoken on abortion rights, that unborn children should have rights, too. well, so should women have rights, and it is women's bodies. they should not control that. th
on that. we had the big sandy relief bill, $60 billion of mostly pork barrel spending, republicans blinked on that. now we have the debt kraoerblgs it looks like the president will get his way on that at least for now. i've been in washington for a longtime, 25 years covering the debt deals and the budget deals. what is frustrating about this is that the only time i can recall over the last 25 years congress has had to get serious about cutting spending and reducing the deficit is when they are at the point of this debt ceiling, and the president says we don't want to use that any more as a kind of point of emphasis, and i think that is a mistake, because what it means is we're never going to get serious about the debt unless we use the debt ceiling as that point where we make a deal to reduce the spending. martha: very distressing. matt, steve, thank you very much, guys. we'll see where this goes. we'll see you soon. >> thanks. >> thank you, martha. bill: 13 minutes before the hour and just about everyone is watching their taxes go higher. why is a famous protkpwoefrl and a pretty good on
situation, even as with the sandy hook situation that happened in conn., intermissions and fast and furious. after mission comes in that fast, it is hard to see what is accurate. days go by and they may have been -- i would as a cover up, but a reluctance to reveal just exactly what happened. i think that the state department and the president of the united states did a commendable job in handling the situation. as the situation continues to go on. another thing is when you talk about security, the republicans fail to remember that there has been a request for additional security if and all of our consulates and the house is holding up funding for the security. so there is a lot of grandstanding going on. there really is unfortunate that to misses clinton has to deal with this kind of politicizing of the really serious situation that continues today and will continue years from now. host: to the point about embassy security. here's a short piece about funding for security. caller: this is a bipartisan problem. since 2007, the department has consistently requested greater funding for embassy
, the disaster would be comparable to hurricane katrina or superstorm sandy -- losses of at least $100 billion and 40,000 jobs. i am going to do whatever i can to make sure that does not happen. my proposed plan is two tunnels 30 miles long and 40 feet wide, designed to improve the ecology of the delta, with almost 100 square miles of habitat restoration. yes, that is big but so is the problem. the london olympics lasted a short while and cost $14 billion, about the same cost as this project. but this project will serve california for hundreds of years. think about california'sinwhene future, no long term liability presents as great a danger to our wellbeing as the buildup of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. according to the latest report from the world bank, carbon dioxide emissions are the highest in 15 million years. at today's emissions rate, the planet could warm by more than 7 degrees fahrenheit by the end of the century, an event unknown in human experience. california is extremely vulnerable because of our mediterranean climate, long coastline and reliance o
. >> after snowstorm sandy. and being together and working together, republican and democrat. you asked, what i have liked to have more of in the inauguration address, it would have been the spirit that you saw with christie and obama. and i like the fact that after that, republicans, instead of being peeved at him, oh, my gosh, you helped o o eed out th guy, they liked it -- >> well, they were forced. >> i think the most important speech that chris christie has given was at the reagan library, where he talked about compromise and leadership. and he said, that's the way -- it's not complicated, how you get things done. you get things done through compromise and leadership. and compromise has been a totally dirty word inside the republican party here. >> it's strange. something's wrong. >> if you can keep that theme going, it's very important. >> does it begin anew tomorrow. wrap it up with your thoughts on the rnc meeting tomorrow. >> like i said, we want to be successful. and i feel like what you've seen out of the republicans over the last couple of days is a much smarter approach, to focus
for an extraordinary door -- daughter who came to the rockaways after sandy. just helping people. >> thank you. >> unannounced, without fanfare. just getting down and helping people. because they needed help after that terrible storm. so just extraordinary public service. and then i want to also say, madam secretary, that you have been a secretary of state and an -- at an extraordinary time in the history of the united states of america and the world. and you have managed the challenge in an equally extraordinary manner. when you took the job america had a ta tarnished image abroad. you have revived our brand, traveled over a million miles to the furthest reaches of the world, to the most challenging areas, and touched the lives of most vulnerable. with your leadership of initiatives like the qddr, you have deepened our confidence that foreign aid can be responsibly spent. on behalf of a grateful nation and definitely the people of the fifth congressional district, i want to thank you for a job well done. the attacks on our mission in benghazi were a painful reminder to all of us that our dipl
boehner, if he wants to get bipartisan vote as he did on sandy relief, he has to be able to drop the hat, and it's personal changes and institutional changes. >> mr. mayor, you run one of the largest cities in the country, san antonio, texas. what can the president do to help? what do you need? >> the president can do what he has began during his first term. two great examples are to collaborate with agencies in his administration. making the transportation department work with the education department, work with the e.p.a., sustainable communicates, promised neighborhoods. to invest in brain power and education, and also lift up neighborhoods at the same time. and to his credit, he's been more collabrative with mayors, i think than we've seen in a long time. so i have a lot of hope for the second term. >> mayor castro of san antonio, texas, and brother joaquin castro in congress, very kind of you to spend a moment with us. >> great to be here. >> the president will be leaving the capitol shortly. he'll go out the east front where members of the u.s. military have been assembled so that
